Lawyer and Donald Gennaro’s boss who worked for the law firm Cowan, Swain, and Ross, the counsel for InGen. He represented the Japanese Investors to InGen after the Isla Nublar Incident, during which InGen filed for Chapter 11 protection. He consulted with Gennaro about the various problems and delays John Hammond had encountered with his Costa Rican Resort, despite Hammond insisting nothing was wrong. Ross, described Hammond as a “potentially dangerous dreamer” and regretted ever getting involved. He agreed that an inspection of the Resort was overdue, and with Gennaro and his team of experts slated to visit the island for an investigation, Ross urged that Gennaro stay on top of the situation.
